*** This is the first I've heard of this curse ***

After the Tigers won the 1984 World Series, a man named Bubba Helms famously posed in front of a burning police car with a Tigers’ World Champions pennant, forever linking in people’s minds the image of rioting hooligans and the city of Detroit. The Tigers have only sniffed the World Series once since then, losing to the Twins in ‘87 in the ALCS, and have lately spiraled into mediocrity. Helms later committed suicide, overdosing on pain pills.
